Kim Kardashian West Meets with French Authorities in New York City to Testify in Paris Robbery Case
Nearly four months have passed since Kim Kardashian West had millions of dollars worth of jewelry stolen from her in Paris
The Keeping Up with the Kardashians met with a French judge and attorneys in New York City on Wednesday, a source confirms to PEOPLE. Kardashian testified in the robbery case in order to identify the men that broke into her apartment at the No Address Hotel during the early hours of Oct. 3.
“This morning, Kim had a meeting with the French judge handling her robbery case. Kim answered questions. She said it went fine. She is just happy that she didn’t have to go to Paris,” the source says.
Per the French justice system, alleged victims in criminal cases are not required to testify in the country. Instead, judges are able travel to them in order to interview them, and the alleged victim is not required to undergo cross-examination.
